Could I ask what AR you change the buffer on ? Ive been shooting a bunch of steel in my 2 carbines and never touched the factory buffers.

Ive had to change out an H3 buffer in a mid length when shooting Tula.

I checked it and its definetly steel core. No wonder I was getting sparks on the steel back stop. The guys at the range will not be happy.

Has anyone ever taken small zip ties and compressed three or four recoil springs? You could try this and if it works for a few hundred rounds you could then just cut the nylon and you are back in business for high presure rounds. Seems like an easy fix if you are shooting more than just a box.

True, no reason to remove the spring unless you keep your buffers and springs as matched pairs.
